A Tribute to the King
            starring Travis LeDoyt

This jaw-dropping Elvis tribute was a matinee show at 2:30 PM on Sunday,October 23, 2016 at the Glenwood Springs High School

Travis LeDoyt is fast becoming one of America's most convincing Elvis tribute acts to ever grace the stage.  Travis flawlessly captures the essence of Elvis in his prime, specializing in the young years of 1954-1962.  His dance moves are spot-on.  Travis was featured in the NY Times as the 'World's Best Young Elvis".  He is backed by a fine band of bass, guitar and drums.  The reincarnation witnessed through this dynamic show is truly spectacular.  For those who never saw the King in concert, this is the next best thing.

Rhythm Future Quartet

The Rhythm Future Quartet performed at the Mountain View Church On Sunday, November 13, 2016 at 7:00 PM.


The acoustic jazz ensemble, Rhythm Future Quartet has a straightforward agenda: to keep the spirit of Gypsy jazz alive and expanding in today’s musical universe. The virtuosic foursome, named for a Django Reinhardt tune, offers up a newly minted sound, influenced by the classic Hot Club of France, yet wholly contemporary. Led by violinist Jason Anick and guitarist Olli Soikkeli, the quartet performs dynamic and lyrical arrangements of both Gypsy jazz standards and original compositions that draw upon diverse international rhythms and musical idioms. With Max O’Rourke on second guitar and Greg Loughman on bass, Rhythm Future is dedicated to expanding the boundaries of a vital musical genre.
